Finally got my ATAKS on!

Just bolted up my new Borla Atak series mufflers and love he tune but still wanting a little mor volume. I have seen some of the things you guys talk about to get more air out such as off road mid pipes, cat deletes and headers just to name a few. If always love some additional power but leaning more towards volume. Which option would give a louder tone?

Taking the cats off will get you the most sound. And about 15 hp.

Will the cats off effect anything else on the car that will throw a code, O2 sensors or mass air flow sensor etc?

Yes, it will throw a code. You will need to get a tune in order to correct it.

Interesting, can you explain how you do this. I really want an off-road h pipe but don't wanna tune it quite yet being i only have 26XX miles on my car and dont want to throw away a good warranty.

Technically that MIGHT work to prevent a code from being thrown, the 11+ models have a COT feature that you also have to deal with. So even if you use this method, the car would still be dumping gas into the would be cats. Hence the reason they dont make mil eliminators or o2 sims for our cars. Without a tune, the car will not run correctly.
